All Things Bright and Beautiful (By: Cecil Frances Alexander)

All Things Bright and Beautiful by Cecil Frances Alexander and illustrated by Katy Hudson is a sweet new book. It is based on Genisis 1:1, 31A.

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth...
And God saw every thing that he had made, and behold, it was very good."
The pictures are absolutely amazing and adorable. Katy Hudson did a tremendous job. She was raised in England and has been painting since she was a small child. She earned a degree in illustration with the encouragement of her parents. She is a freelance author and illustrator now and her studio is located in Old London library. I truly believe this is the cutest book I have ever seen.
Cecil Frances Alexander was an amazing and inspiring woman who wrote hymns and poems during her time. She was born in 1818 in Dublin, Ireland. Her writing began as a young girl. One of her best known hymns is "All Things Bright and Beautiful". This book was made from that hymn. She died in 1895 and is remembered because of her great kindness and generosity.
Throughout the book the author speaks about God and how He created all things. Through God's inspiration, the whole world and all its beauty was made. No matter what, if something is great or small, wise or wonderful, God created it all.
My children truly love this book. All Things Bright and Beautiful gave them a book about the things that God made. I highly recommend purchasing this book for your children, nieces and nephews, or grandchildren.
